Mahalo for your continued support of our locally owned hotel! We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.

The people were very friendly. The hotel is currently being updated, they started with important things like beds and washer/dryer before doing cosmetic updates...so the rooms look slightly outdated, but you’ll sleep comfortably and have an overall enjoyable stay.

Yes, they were very accommodating. We styed overnight only and allowed us to stay in the room until 4.30pm at no extra charge. I am sure they will have a room set aside for baggage. We found the staff very helpful.

I'm not sure about shuttle services as we rented a car. But it's close to many sites and restaurants. I recommend hiring a vehicle giving you much more flexibility In All you do. Have a great time!!!
